Ihiriflg the past eight years, which I deTotfd 
to tbe making and flying of kites for serial ad- 
vertising purposes, SQ Ides leading toward aerial 
flight bas been appermoat in my mind, and 1 
have l>een canylng ont cxpcrbneats along Out

I have made aeroplanes as large as 14 feet, 
with 160 square feet of snrfsee, and have had 
combinations of my kites In the air with ai 
aggregate aorface of ST5 square feet, and 
have made practical tests of tbelr polllag aad 
Uftlns power. I bare atodied emy poiat aad

tbat a aaamer of small oacs In a groop. witb 
tbe same nnmber of-aqaare feet, will lift even 
m<H-e than tbe big one. 

After obtaining tbla kaowledge aa to the 
velocity of wind reqntred to lift .four ounces 
per square foot of surface, the next proposition 
to he solved Is bow to arrange, the surface in 
the best possible .manner. If an aeroplane of 
IW square feet vt Surface will lift 40 pounds In 
a twenty mile wind, I take It tnat dve times 
that surface will lift Ave times as mnch, or SOO 
square feet wni lift a welRbt of 200 ponnds. 

The construction of an aeroplane of 800 square 
feet moat weigh no more ttiaa 1!4 euacc per 
square foot of surface, or abont 63 faaMu It 
most be atroog* with no weak polan 'flsA .gw*

out of order, there woold be aolj a slight cbange 
in tbe center of gravity, wbcie with one big 
one the breaking of even a guy-line would be 
very dangerous. 

In the construction of this frame queer rules 
tiave to he followed as to the construction oC tbe 
braces. Tbe amoont of strength of each bcaet 
most be known and the position that It wlU 
have to tbe wiad asaat be taken latere '*

Here are some fseta aa ta the pstassre of the 
tvlnd per square foot at dlKetcnt Tcloeltlet 
ivblch may prove useful sod valuatile to many 
readers of The Billboard, Including aeronauts sod 
superintendents of circus canvss: The wind 
at 14 miles per boar lias a pressure of one pound 
Iter square foot; at 28 miles, 41 pounds, aud la 
ou. To find the pressure per square foot st sny 
velocity divide the velocity of the wind by H 
and square tbe ptbdnct; tbla will equal the

The story of Lieut. Dick Is laid in Ft. Bnssell, 
near Cbeyenne, Wyo. There la plenty of melo- 
drama of tbe Inrld kind in the new piece, tbongb 
tbe action does not go to extremes. An tin- 
faithfnl wife, a scheming captain, a military 
Tillaln and other strenuous characters of west- 
ern life are brought out prominently In the stosy 
whicta is well told.

TIjIs annooncement wUl temporarily set to

how the Independent people would fill In an 
entire season with their apparently limited nnm- 
ber of attractions. However. It Is not recy prob- 
able that tbe Sbnherts have or will make sneb 
an agreement with Robert Grau or any other 
vandevllle agency. The Independent people do 
not seem in a position to antagonise tbe Taude- 
vllle interests.

Independent people will enter In competition

Bnmon aw ever aflaat itgatdinc new thtt- 
tree to ho areeled la BsoOkljra. A manager re. . 
cently tald be waa of tlic opinion tbat latw. 
Brooklynltes loved the Great Whits Waj, aad 
tliat when tbey wanted to See n ft shew wooM 
hie themselves aetosa tlie bridge, and not wall 
a year hence until the abow'a arrival In Brook- 
lyn. Think there la mnch troth In tbe argu. 
ment. The popular priced bouses are Bonrlth. 
log. and seats must be ordered la advance by 
those who would not be disappointed. 

All nen-spBper men bare a warm spot in 
their hearts for Lew Parker, one of Brooklyn's 
faTorltes. He Is a keen business man. and the 
Sbuberta have made a wise move In engaging 
him for their Park Theatre. It seems passlog 
strange for this genera Moq to notice Xhorlej'fi 
handsome Horlst wagon drive nj> In front ot tlie 
Park, and to MM ths MMK •qplpasaa that 
stop, Tbe Park is aoM am k faaasHlaa ot 

Its own. 

Are Brooklynltes treated with « degree ot se- 
rlousness In the veleetlon ot plays? We ate 
not given credit. It appeara, tat pnasenilng su- 
perlor theatrical taste. Perfonnera call BnoK- 
lyn- '•between the Urlng and tha. dead." aad 
of tlmea do not infnae vim Into thatr Mita. 
Doobtleis wm are from the fans, bat Braofelyn 
wUl yet tlaa ap in ansa. It tm tka 
Jorlty voM to a mayor. That.loOfcs Ilka "things

aiary Olbbs Spooner la a bnsy woman these 
dsys. One ot the most saeeesatnl theatres U 
Brooklyn la the Bljoa. where tbe S. B. O. sign 
is coostastly Is nae. Tbla gives evidence ot 
several yean of bard work on tbe pan ot Mrs. 
Spooner and her daogbten. Edna May and 
Cecil, wbo personally direct tlie performance 
whUe their mother looks after tite bnsioeas 
nCTalrs. Tbat a congenial atmosphere has de- 
veloped is proven by tbe tact that the entire 
company Is tbe same as when tbe Spoonets 
made their entry Into Brooklyn. Mrs. spooner 
li a diplomat, and were she a man. President 
Boosevelt might well look to hla lanrels. 

Disrobing acts appear to make a tremendooa 
hit in Brooklyn, And In the "City of Cborches." 
too. SboeklngI Hotriblel At tbe Star some 
weeks ago, tha tamed Obaimlon waa dlatohlng, 
while at tha Aleasar hnt a tew weeka an 
Atalanta. "dUact.ttom her Bnropean triumphs?'

"even It yoa be a press agent." sa tbe farmer 

If yoa can ludd out long enough to sliow the 
pabllc yon aw game, yoa will be a snceesi. 
This is my reasoning, snd evidently that ot 
Frank Keeney. for be baa made a huge saceess 
of bis vandevUie house on Fulton street. He 
has an ail-star bill tbat would make me gasp 
ir I had to pay tbe salaries, bat I don't. So, 
why worry t 

Yoa can't get ahead of the Majestic. I 
Kuess not, because they sre Ijooklng Just what 
Brooklynltes want. Mansger Frldley must be 
possessed of a little bird that flies aroaod 
Brooklyn gaining ideas of what should be played 
in tbe city. 

The stars of tbe Peyton Stock Co. a few 
weeks ago quietly retired from tbe bill— a

then, ttas capital of 
'Virginia, was also where the TToiinTna 
were to open their colonial theatrical 
career. They chose the capital of Vir-

tore this period and long afterward, 
the reading of . plays, romances and 
operas was a pastime in Virginia 
country houses. The readings might 
be by the piiviato tatar, and many of 
the young men of those days prided 

themselves on being good elocution- 
ists. It was a pastime that filled out 
rainy .awnday aftemomis. and 

when a HOOtar could apt be had for 
evening dances. 

wmiamsbtirg was somesiiat of a 
disappointment to the Hallams when 
they first landed. There were not 
more ttian twelve hnndred 
white and btao^ .tlw. -toinh WtA 
there were only abdi^ flfteen ot tW«n- 
ty "gentlemen's" families resident in 
the vlUa«e. Most of the bnUdings 
were very instgnificaiit. without it was 
the capital and the so-ealled 'palace" 
of the goveniw. and tbe 'V^lliam and 
Mary CoUegre, the second oldest col- 
lege in the United States, wliich -was

Ite tlM ontokMs of tha .vElias the 
aetots rentad a wardioasa and 'fitted 

it up for a theatre. The seats were 
classified into boxes, pit and gallery, 

all on the same floor. They ~ 

bant at 

the end of the warehouse. They had 
to use tallow dips for the foot lights, 
and also to light the building. Before 
the ttme arrived for the opening of the 
theatre the company became much 
more discouraged than at first. The 
old -warehouse was right in the 'woods, 
and during the still hours of the day, 
hardly did they see a person stirring 
in the village. They could hear the 
singing of bird In the trees, and It 
looked to them that they had come 
on a fool's errand to aet dnuaas to 

the woods. But when the opening 
night of the theatre came, Sept. 6, 
1752, the whole scene was changed 
like a work of magic. The road lead- 
ing into Willtawisbnrg wave thronged 
wlOt «nt-«C-date veUdes at every 
sort, driven by negroes and filled with 
gayly dressed ladles, whose gallants 
rode on horseback by their side. The 
treasury was well replenished, the 
theatre was crowded, and Shakespeare 
was acted on the eontinent tor ttw.first 
time by a trained and competent omn-

actors found themselves soiTonnded: 
by groups of planters coagiatnlating ' 
than, ana, aXter the old Virginia j 
fMblon, offering- them the hospitality | 
of their houses. The actor folks soon 
found that the capacity of th'elr thea- 
tre was not large enough to accom- 
modate the fliropg" at peepla who oame 
to patronize them. . 

Ijewis Hallam, Jr., or, as he was 
called in those days, Lie'wis Hallam, 
the second, was the son of Lewis Hal- 
lam. the manager of this company. 
Toung Hallam was about sixteen 
when Ms fa ther opened with his thea- 
tre at 'Wmianujbarg, and It -was on 
the opening night tliat he tried to 
make his debut. He had one line to 
speals. but when he found himself in 

stage' atrmdc. ' ' Be * stood 

and speechless until, bursting into 
tears, he walked oft the stage, making 
a most inglorious exit. But. neverthe- 
I— fc'. b<awre . tala tetters' company left 
wnifiaiiSbnrg; he' tried it again, and in 
after years filled a unique place in the 
history of the American theatre. He 
'was the first star ever known to 
American playgoers, and the first 
leading actor whose debnt and early 
experiences were American. He was 
the foremost actor in America for fif- 
teen years or more before the revo- 
lution, and he was the first dramatic 
manager in New Tork after the In- 
d^tendcnee at Ite UUtod 

Xre-wis Hallam. the second, retired 
from management In 1797, but con- 
tinued to play in various places in 
America until Us death in Philadel- 
phia, in 1808. at seventy-two years of

colony was accordingly divided into 
mllltery districts, to each of which an

£150 per annum George 'Washing-

years of age, receiving one of these 
appoints -went to 'Williamsburg, and 
entered 'with zeal on the study of mil- 
itary tactics and strategy, chiefly un- 
der Adjutant Muse, a 'Virginian, and 
J acob Van Beaem. a Dutch soldier of 
fortune. These studies were inter- 
rupted by excursion to Barbadoes -with 
his tmcle. La'wrence Washington, who 
was sent thither by his physician. 
During this trip George had an attack 
of smallpox . Recovering from this, he 
returned^o WUllamsimrg to resume

cast to "carer tbe banner" — which was to carry 
a bancer which had on it a irhlto goose, and, 
aa tbe procession bad to be a long one, he went 
off ttie stage at one side, and ran aroood to tbe 
other side to get In line again. Next week 
came John T. Sayvood In The Gilded .\ge,

KvoLunoN OP THE ciiieus 

It may be that fnttire historians of the Amer- 
ican circus will record the sesson of 190S, m 
the beginning of an epoch. The abandonment 
of the street parade and the gradaal nabetltu- 
tlon of newspaper advertising, for the flamlnc 
posters of other days are not merely remarkable 
phenomena In lhemS4?lves, bnt are symptoms of 
tbe great and fundamental change wblch ha> 
come at>oat in tbe relation between the circa* 
and Its public. Divesting Itself of Its long- 
exploited character of a "great moral lastltn- 
tlon." UH-owlug off St tbe aama time maA of 
the glamour and mystery that oaee aanoaaled 
It, the dtctts is beglnnlnc to maha Ita ap pe a l 
frankly as what It U o ac aC tte ^eBttataM 
diveraUed. and aUwMte a wat a attaatdfcatf 
amusement Instltntaoa uiat aumaa - lageaalty 
has devised. 

Tbe circus really has merely changed with 
the people ot the country. The early Bh<.w- 
men, who bad to make their way against aa 
lU-instmcted and bigoted hostility, hroaght to 
their aid every resource ot cant and charlatanry 
of which Yankee wlU were capable. Beapeeta- 
ble people would not go to an nngodly enter- 
Ulnment. Very well. Then tber malt be

tbongh tbey fall to conform to a single one of 
the dictionary definitions, because It was Id

E. S. HaDoek. writing in the Century, recall 
tbat tbe first wart-bog to reach America war 
billed as "the Prodigal's Swine," and the 
water-buffalo aa- "the ox that treads oot the

costumed ballet was redeemed from profane aa- 
soclations by being called Solomon and the 
Queen of Sbeba, and Mr. Hallock finds In 183S

Id tbe basket dance la marked and It may t>e

of tbe big novelty sloglog acts of tbe season. 
Miss Mathews is a beautiful woman, and haa

She had no sooner said tbls. than a trained

a tree orerbead. Tbls was a signal for the 
company to disperse, and s few minutes later 
the fairy queen Zo-Zo was on her way to the 
Zoo, borne In a canopied couch on the back 
of a swift flying swallow. This was many

to animal, and the fairy kisses she baa dropped 
upon their brows snd eyes have made them 
gentler and have cansed them to really con- 
ceive a feeling of friendship for their visltois. 

But all these years, tbe fairy qneen longed 
for the arrival of the animal with the tooth, 
that was to unlock all the cages and paddocks 
in the gronnda. She was bnmsn enongb to

this one tias tbe magic tooth," she would 
say, but when she found she was mistaken, she 
would not grow discouraged. She would say, 
"Ah. well, I am sure it will be here sooner 
or later." 

A few weeks ago, a dog-tsced baboon arrived 
at tbe monkey bouse. Queen Zo-Zo having ren-

Baboon, with an expression of deep gravity, 
showing that he fully realUed the import-

It was rather awkward, and it was some time

Tbe party planned to start Mritf ttt 
moraine, bat when the dogs were tamtat ap, 
Ben had disappeared. He bad ran away and 

was probably dead. He. was tbe leader of the 
team. Bat three miles was o( little account 
to Mrs. Wbltmore. She bad seemed to ar- 
ranf;e things In tbe past, and the party looked 
forward to her making all fnture arrange- 
ments. "NeTer mind, I'll play dog." she said. 
After Melville had been placed on the ?Ipc1 wltb 
tbe gmb and blankets and with a few pine 
boughs forming a top covered with rugs, tbe 
two dogs were hitched on. ATola was at the 
gee-pole and Krs. Wbltmore slipped Into ber 
bamess. saying: **Come on boys, this Is tbe 
sweetest load I ever polled. Don't fear, Arola. 
dont' let the sled shake l( you can help It. 
Support yotirself with the pole, I shall be tbe 
lead. All readyl All ready! All ready!" 

Not a word wai apokea nntU tbe party 
reached Log Cabin. Ura. Wbltmore carrying 
a stick In her hand to help beraelf aloo^ 
over tbe rongh road, seemed like a wolf, aa 
(he moved aronnd the winding. lurrow trail

The dramatic Incident of the death of Jld-

of Sir Henry Irving. On March ae, 1833. Kean 
was performing Othello to his son's (Cbarlea

Md ss the eyelids of tbe weary traveler slowly

toee. Were he to die, how mach easier would 
tt be to pass over the river, now that bis mother 
waa by tUa side. The mother's efforts can be 
better Imagined than told. She seemed a 
marvel of strength and Jndgment, Under the 
clear sky, with only tear homan beings to 
council with and little to do with, yet no 
usk was too great. The second night she 
lay down by Melville's aide. Recently aald one 
of the party: "I shall never forget the pic- 
ture, aa the camp are threw Its shadow on 
tbe pale face of tbe twy. He In his Impetuona

found him In time that she might save hla

"Well, it's a face to luce -a man to

THE Billboard Is pleased to ex- 
tend to billposters and distrib- 
utors generally Christmas 
sreeUnss. tt is ft Uttte mtxiy 
in the game, but aa this Is ths Chitet- 
mas Billboard. It Is the proper place 
In which to say "Merry Christmas." 
WhUe Tbe BiUboard has taken but a 
r— <«y •liilsiisr In tlin aflslxs .oC; its 
biUposter MMids fiiir Sdme ttans It esn 
not overlook the evidences of loyalty 
to the "Old Reliable," 'which they have

!,i Tiitte win be a great gathering of 
Unpostlng magnates In Old Clncy next 
Tnasday, when the directors oC the 
Association wiU hold tbcir.' Jlacaiiber 
meeting. A large attsndsaos Is ex- 
pected, and an the High Guys wlU be 
«n hand. We have not decided whether 
it would be best to take to the woods 
on this octasion, or to remsln.'tB'town 
and face it out. It is expected tlist 
when thla bunch arrives that we will 
be panic stricken and ready to hold up 
both hands. We may. on the second 
thought, decide to hajig oat the latch 
string, and be prepared to extend a 
ffiaA hand to all comers. The direc- 
tors might do worse than spend an 
hour or so looking over tbe magnificent 
plant of The Billboard. A busier UYe 
' of industry is not to be found In CIn- 
l^annatL ^ ^ ^ 

i^' - Oar old friend. O. F. Vsddsr. for- 
merly with the Van P— W tt^pisnt in 
New York, is now eonnsetsd wMh The 
Newark Sign Co.. where he is making 
good. Notwithstanding tbe fact that 
vaddn's exptrisnce In the billposting 
' IlilMlriiiM ' jflOMr niit irtT"-' over more 
^ Ika&'flm^wn^ MHrtoe. be Is particu- 
: laxly fitted to make good. Vedder has 
' . ft pleasing manner, is a thorough gen- 

- tleman. and presents his proposition In 
ft straightforward business way. He 
takes great personal pride in seeing 

- -that "the details of a contract, placed 
■ In his hands, are carried out as agreed. 
■>• Thus he wins a customer every time. 

• • • 

- ' It Is hinted that old man Van Ben- 
ren is already klckiog himself for sell- 
ing out the controlling interest In the 
combined New Tork plant to Barney 
Unk. Under the old arrangement, 

: ' VsnBenren's share of the year's profits 
amounted to sotnethlng ilka .thirty or 
tblrty-five thousand dulan. Now, he 
derives but stx per cent, on his pre- 
ferred stock of tll6,000 — less than 
seven thousand dollars. Of course, be 
got one bondred and sixteen thonssnd 
doOan cash tor Ills wnnnw a i .Mvel^ but 

be flnsL Just tbe same, The New Tork 
City Combination is worrying over the 

situation, and know that the theatre 
managers are seriously considering the 
matter. We have it from a reliable 
source that tb* deal Is going to go 
through, and that nothing oan stop it.

With an orchestral band, such as mine, the work 
Of arranging programs la particularly difflcolt.

This worin In practice as follows: 
When the companys* agent receives a

telephones the order to the traction
